A short but very interesting and fun climb. A good way to break in to 5.12 climbing. The route involves power and some very balancy and technical moves.
Stick clip the first bolt and bust in to the steep part, big moves on really good holds. Move through this quickly so not to pump yourself out. Some interesting moves lead to a good, sharp, horn hold leading up to a few pinches a possible, knee-bar rest and a final, thin section that I've seen done many ways. Basically do what you can to follow the arete to the good holds at the top.
The farthest left bolted climb on the cliff.
5 bolts to quick clips.

This is a great climb for anyone looking to break into 5.12 grades. It lends itself to anyone's style, whether you like big deadpoints, powerful squeezing, pinching, kneebars, or thin crimping. You can use any combination of the above techniques to achieve success on this climb!

The kneebar is bomber if you have a kneepad and aren't super tall

Here's a video Jakob took of me sending Pretzel Logic for the first time. I've been told of many ways to climb it... but this is what went down for me.
Make sure to switch it to 720p because mountain project removes the &hd=1 portion of my link. :(
